Our festival-Diwali

                                            My favorite festival



 India is a diverse country. People of different castes and religions live in the country. Various festivals are celebrated in such a diverse country. One of the biggest festivals is Diwali. We also call Diwali Diwali. This festival is known as the festival of lights. Diwali is celebrated in October or November like the English month, while in Marathi it is at the end of Ashwin month and at the beginning of Kartik month. The festival is usually celebrated as a boom after the farmers bring home the grain after completing the farming activities. It is said that when Lord Shriram and Sita returned to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile, the region from Ayodhya to Mithila was lit up to welcome them. Since then we have been celebrating Diwali.

 Even before the Diwali festival begins, the atmosphere is full of excitement. The children have a school holiday on the occasion of Diwali. New clothes, holidays, sweets and firecrackers are all eagerly awaiting Diwali. They also meet their loved ones, relatives and friends on the occasion of Diwali, so they are also looking forward to Diwali. Diwali is generally celebrated for five days. This festival of light is widely celebrated from Vasubaras to Bhaubij. Even before the Diwali festival begins, the women of the house start preparing for the farala. Various dishes like Laddu, Chakalya, Shev, Shankarpali, Chivda,Anarase are prepared. Everyone in the house gets new clothes. During the Diwali festival, boys and girls make sky lanterns, build forts and paint pictures on them. Beautiful rangoli are drawn in front of the door. From the first day of Diwali till the bhaubija, pantyas are planted daily. The festival of Diwali begins with the festival of Vasubaras.


 This day is also called Govats Dwadashi. On this day, cows and calves are worshiped and they are fed grass and sweet atoms. Housewives pour water on the feet of cows and calves, turmeric, kumkum, flowers flow on them.


 Grain is worshiped on Dhantrayodashi. On this day people buy new things, gold, silver. Dhantrayodashi is also celebrated as Dhanvantari's birthday. There is a legend that Indradev churned the sea with demons to remove the curse of Durvas Rishi. On this day people give prasad neem leaf pieces and sugar.


  Krishna killed Narakasura by cutting his body in two and freed 16,100 girls from his captivity. The festival of Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated on the day of Ashwin Krishna Chaturdashi in remembrance of Krishna's prowess.


  This is the most important day of Diwali. Abhyang bath is done in the morning. Women make beautiful rangoli. All the house is decorated. On this day all the people in the house wear new clothes. In the evening Lakshmi, Ganapati and Saraswati are worshiped. After the puja, happiness is celebrated by bursting firecrackers. The New Year of the merchants begins after Lakshmi Puja.


  This day is celebrated as Balipratipada or Padva. One of the three and a half muhurtas is considered to be the 'Padva' muhurat. The victim is a public welfare king and is worshiped in his memory. On this day, the wife waves to the husband and the husband gives gifts to the wife.

Bhaubij (siblings):

  Diwali ends with the celebration of Bhaubij. This is the day to nurture the unconditional love of sister and brother. On this day, Yama went to his sister Yami's house for dinner, so this day is also called Yamadvitiya. On this day, sister waves to brother and brother gives gift to sister
